Tri-Counties Regional Center embraces a culture of shared learning and continuous improvement through high quality learning opportunities for employees, service providers, community partners and individuals and families receiving services and supports. Ongoing opportunities include New Employee Welcome, Service Coordinator Orientation, Service Provider Orientation, Coaching and Project LEAD. TCRC offers continuing education units (CEUs) for specific courses.
Person centered practice is a keystone of our culture. Over the past decade TCRC has continued work on a broad training initiative to build capacity for person centered practices. This multi-year plan includes training staff, service providers, families and adults served and other interested community members. An introduction to Person Centered Thinking is required of all new staff and reinforced through modeling and coaching support from managers. Communities of Practice is offered in each regional location to augment training and build confidence in using the tools. Additional training opportunities are available to all stakeholders to embed person centered skills and practices in daily work and life.
